This is a great book for older siblings expecting a baby brother or sister. It is also a great choice for baby/toddler story time. My baby/toddler story time often has a mixed group of ages, from the babies to their older siblings. This is one book that will appease everyone in the room. The book, made up entirely of photographs, showcases how the same actions can be done by the baby and by their older sibling. The book is written from the voice of the older sibling, pointing out the similarities and differences between their shared objects and skills. This is a great book for older siblings to read with their younger siblings. It also gives some great ideas for how the two can play together and interact, especially as the younger sibling gets older and more interactive.

That’s your car seat.

Here’s my chair.
